Default Horse Burgers Whopper of a Mess

Burger King had previously said it only used 100 percent British and Irish beef.
The horse meat scandal broke last month when British supermarket chain Tesco sold burgers with traces of horse meat.

Bute is widely used as a pain killer for horses but has been linked with bone marrow and liver problems in humans.

An investigation by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland found earlier this month that four British supermarkets, including Tesco, had sold burgers contaminated with horse meat.

The probe followed warnings that unwanted horses were being illegally sold into the food chain.

Hmmm. Have a reply in email from Luk

What do you think about horse meat scandal?
So,

I am not certain of a "scandal" but in my opinion, I feel that if there is traces of ANY questionable injectibles known to be toxic, these animals should not be food for ANYTHING.

I also wonder if there is going to be a mad round up of any horse just to make some quick funds.

But with genetically modified foods being allowed - for no other reason than to allow patenting of the seeds by a very large corporation who can one day bring those allowing them to their knees....why not tainted horse meat?

I try to KNOW where the food comes from that I buy for myself and my family. Yes, I have even called the farm! To be CERTAIN his cattle is NOT eating grass that has been sprayed with gmo soy/corn, etc.

Fast food? Never touch the stuff. It isn't food. Just because some government entity allows the crap to be sold as such, doesn't mean it is. I feel they are allowing it because of greed.

So, that's what I think.


Where did the reply go?

Horsemeat is considered a delicacy in many countries - Particularly in France.

Horse meat is much too lean for me. I've tasted it once upon a time in a restaurant in Atlanta. They were also serving buffalo, which is somewhat lean as well. It does not repulse me, but I want to know it is in my food/burger at least. There is a rumor that long ago McDonalds was discovered with kangaroo in their burgers. I don't care for the taste of "wild", including venison.

I like my food to be as safe as I can possibly find. (even for my PETS!!!) No injections, NO questionable feeds (gmo), just no HUMAN tankering with. For profit.

I really don't care about who(m) finds what a delicacy. Not gonna eat anything that can basically pull me from earthquake rubble, alert me while asleep of a fire, carry me away from danger...etc. I think you get my drift. I respect them far too much to cover them up with mayo and pickles while my obese/diabetic arse asks "does the extra large bag of fried crap come with this?" No thanks. Cannot/will not.


Horse is no different. Forced into slavery - raced until broken, bred for hormones, abused, starved, tripped for entertainment, etc...I ain't eating it. For folly or whatever. Give me a plate of dandelion weeds instead.

There are even "people" that truly believe if you eat the meat of an animal that was basically tormented and cooked alive the adrenalin in its tissues will make you stronger, sexier, etc. Or a bear's gallbladder contents being spilled while alive will bring health. To me, it's the same thought process for dead horse. Aren't these same morans getting the depression, terror, trauma, fear - PAIN? from the tissues? Whatever. Stupid is as stupid does. They sure ain't pretty, sexy, etc. I wouldn't eat what they're selling.

Maybe there is a HUGE market for dead horse. Just make it clean dead horse. There will be people making billions on the trade - clean or dirty.

There are sooo many deer in the USA - that for a sport many are just killed for fun - what about THAT meat? To be given away for the poor? There are NO programs by us like that. (I would trust deer meat more so than the horse.)

Until a bison or a buffalo can pull me free...they are fair "game." Chickens MUST be humanely treated, well fed and die with some dignity. I have been known to thank my creator for supplying the item and thanking the food before I eat. I don't use down feathers, would not even consider eating abused duck liver - etc. Piggies are a no, too.

Horse falls in the category of saving my life someday. Or bringing someone to me that can. Like a knight. Preferably on a white horse.

Most of the animals are terrorized, abused, tormented, very ill and mistreated until they are slaughtered - for what ever purpose we deem necessary. Maybe they DON"T want to be a race horse, pull your sled, be pillow stuffing. No. I cannot.

I also cannot buy foods that I am aware people are not paid a fair wage for, or that children were exploited just because.

I also will NOT touch any cosmetic, food, or COLA - that has exploited the use of aborted humans for their cells. Just because it is allowed doesn't mean I agree. The only way I can show my distaste is with my wallet. *Using the cells to find a cure for babies? ok. To up the bottom line of a company? No.


These corporations are making BILLIONS off aborted humans - where is the outrage? A very important politician went on record to claim the soda maker is just doing some "ordinary business operations." Nice. Who is this guy? And where is he from?


*********AND this is their year: "No Popsi products containing Senonymx flavor enhancers should be expected until 2013." https://www.lifesitenews.com/blog/con...are-the-facts/ (name of product changed for fun).


Drink up. Flavor enhancers Really?: HEK293--HUMAN EMBRYONIC KIDNEY, abortion #293. Poor little babies. Should the parents be compensated by the use? Are people drinking up the unknown dads DNA of many of these aborted humans? Can there be issues with that a couple years down the road? Roll.of.the.dice.

I guess we'll find out, huh? You know for sure it won't be that COMPANY to take responsibility. The mother, if found, will be hauled into court. Is how I see it.

Who is liable for the tainted meat? The gmos? The poisons? The pesticides? Who will be responsible for illness? The stupid kid wrapping up the horse burger for crying out loud.

Its your HEALTH. When is anyone going to make a sqwak over the condition of our FOOD? It will be a bit late when you're (general - no one in particular) in the ICU with a tube down your throat - due to HEART ATTACK, DIABETIC COMA, oh the countless OTHER DEADLY illnesses that are attributed to diet choices that BIG PHARMA cannot cure with petroleum pills. sheeeesh. Or the slow agonizing cancer of the everything...digestive disorders, BRAIN PROBS being treated today with pills that do NOT CURE!!!

No more experiments on me, my family - my pets. For profit. No thanks.

Bon apetit.
